Widnes rocked by Inu leg break

Widnes Vikings have been hit with a major blow after confirming Krisnan Inu has broken his leg.

The centre underwent surgery on Wednesday and took to social media to confirm he is set to miss 10 to twelve weeks of action.

Inu suffered the injury in the club’s Good Friday defeat to Warrington Wolves, ending a fantastic individual start to the season.

The former Catalans ace scored six tries in his opening eight appearances for the club and had been one the Vikings’ star performers.

He took to Twitter on Wednesday to provide fans with an update on his injury.

“Just to clear the air on those wondering, since I’ve just had my op a few hours ago, now I’m pretty sure I can say it’s about 10-12 weeks on the sideline. Sorry @WidnesRL fans.. I’ll be back even stronger then before. Let’s keep supporting our team and this great club!!”

It’s another injury blow for Denis Betts to contend with as Widnes look to end a run of four losses in their last five games.
